About VMR Victoria Point
Volunteer Marine Rescue Victoria Point was established in 1982 and continues to develop crew skills and equipment to ensure we are ready to assist the boating public across Moreton Bay. Located at Victoria Point, near the northern ramp, we maintain two Rescue vessels and cover the Bay, between Cleveland and the Logan River, and across to North Stradbroke Island
Our base is manned on weekends and Public holidays by our highly professional volunteers who make up four rotating crew rosters. After hours’ emergency response is via mobile phone, which is constantly monitored outside Base hours. Safety of Life at Sea is our prime objective. Whether it be a stricken or endangered vessel, or a situation requiring first aid, we are ready to quickly respond. We work closely with other emergency services including the Qld Water Police on SAR operations, Qld Fire and Rescue and Qld Ambulance Service.
Government funding is critical to maintaining our boats and equipment, however it doesn’t cover running costs and equipment replacement. We rely heavily on Associate Membership, which costs $77 per year. Our volunteers also spend a lot of time fundraising, so many thanks to all who donate so generously. Please continue to support our popular boaties market with two events held each year – check our web site for more details.
